  • The Catholic League's Bill Donohue is calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment: "As any astute political science undergraduate knows, there is no constitutional right to gay marriage. But now that this issue has been thrust upon us by our constitutional law professor president, we need to affirm marriage between a man and a woman in the U.S. Constitution."
  • MassResistance has a simple fourteen point plan on how to "stop the 'gay marriage' steamroller."
  • Because Bryan Fischer is a paragon of dishonesty and misinformation, he can't understand why President Obama named Ron Klain as his "Ebola czar" since Klain supposedly thinks that the world has too many Africans and Asians.
  • Dave Welch tells Gordon Klingenschmitt that he and other pastors are prepared to go to jail rather than comply with subpoenas to hand over their sermons.
  • Finally, working for Glenn Beck has literally got to be the worst job in the world, as his staff are stuck being lectured by him every day as he flails about, desperately trying to figure out what he is doing.

Catholic League: 'Mindy Project' Showed 'Potentially Lethal' Anal Sex Scene

The Catholic League is displeased with Mindy Kaling, warning in a statement today — “Anal Sex Thrills ‘Mindy’” — that the “The Mindy Project” creator, along with her “homosexual writers,” may inadvertently kill people with a suggestive scene involving jokes about anal sex.

“Binge drinking, like anal sex, is potentially lethal, but Hollywood only has an interest in promoting the latter,” Catholic League president Bill Donohue writes. “That’s because of the large number of homosexual writers who work there. Catholics would appreciate it, however, if they would keep their dark secrets in the closet, where they belong.”

HT: RWW reader Andrew.

Last night’s episode of “The Mindy Project,” a Fox show, opened with an implied sex scene involving Dr. Mindy Lahiri (played by Mindy Kaling) and Danny Castellano (played by Chris Messina); it was titled, “I Slipped!” The room is dark and there is moaning.



After the title sequence, the two characters are shown in an office arguing about the sexual encounter from the night before. Mindy is upset with what Danny did. Danny insists it was a mistake. It is implied that Danny attempted anal sex.



Bill Donohue offers his thoughts on this episode:

Binge drinking, like anal sex, is potentially lethal, but Hollywood only has an interest in promoting the latter. That’s because of the large number of homosexual writers who work there. Catholics would appreciate it, however, if they would keep their dark secrets in the closet, where they belong.

Matt Barber: Flood St. Patrick's Day Parade With Anti-Gay Banners

Matt Barber is angry that gay groups will finally be allowed to march in the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and believes the appropriate response is to have anti-gay demonstrators participate in the parade.

“Some faith-based organizations could carry banners and so forth exclaiming the truths of scripture relative to homosexual sin,” he said in an interview with the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow.

“[They could] use the opportunity to denounce what the New York City St. Patrick’s Parade organization has done here and to take them to task for casting aside the truths of scripture and disobeying the teachings of Christ.”

"What was once billed as a Catholic event can no longer be called such," Barber tells OneNewsNow. "They are openly allowing a sin-based organization to march in their parade and to effectively put their stamp of approval on what the Bible unequivocally calls sinful behavior."

Faith-based organizations that want to remain loyal to the Bible have a decision to make as to whether to participate. Barber offers a suggestion.

"Some faith-based organizations could carry banners and so forth exclaiming the truths of scripture relative to homosexual sin," he suggests. "[They could] use the opportunity to denounce what the New York City St. Patrick's Parade organization has done here and to take them to task for casting aside the truths of scripture and disobeying the teachings of Christ."

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who will be next year's grand marshal, says the parade committee "continues to have my confidence and support" – and he thanked them for keeping the parade "close to its Catholic heritage."

But the editor of Catholic World News believes Dolan should step down as grand marshal. "Why don't we just admit [the parade] has no religious significance," asks Philip Lawler, stating he believes the parade is more of a civic event that has already lost much of its ties to religion. Allowing homosexuals to identify themselves as they march in the parade, he adds, "seems a contradiction in honoring a Catholic saint."

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, meanwhile, wonders if gay marchers will keep “their pants on”:

Responding to the decision by organizers of New York’s St. Patrick's Day Parade ending its ban and allowing for the first time an LGBT group to march behind its banner, Bill Donohue of Catholic League, a longtime opponent of allowing gays to march, asked, “Will the gays behave?”

“The reason I have to ask is that, unlike others,” he said in an interview with me on SiriusXM Progress, “they have a tendency to act up, [not keeping] their pants on.”

  • Finally, the Catholic League's Bill Donohue knows why people are rioting in Ferguson: "Why is there is no such thing as a winter riot? Because it's cold outside. Quite frankly, it's not fun to riot when it's freezing. Moreover, when the temperature rises, so do the passions. Heat also makes it likely that young men — it's mostly young men — will take to the streets to act out."

Donohue: No Institution 'Has Less Of A Problem' With Sexual Abuse Than The Catholic Church

The Catholic League's Bill Donohue was a guest on yesterday's edition of "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV where he was asked by guest-host Ed Berliner what Pope Francis could do to "clean up the Catholic Church" and put an end to the sexual abuse of children within the church.

Donohue responded that there was not much the Pope could do ... mostly because sexual abuse of children is not a problem in the church any more.

"This problem that took place," Donohue asserted, "was between approximately 1965 and 1985. That coincides with the sexual revolution and then the discovery of AIDS in '81."

"What I am saying," he continued, "is that this problem has largely been checked."

Declaring that other institutions, such as public schools, have a much worse problem with sexual abuse than does the church, Donohue said there was no problem for Pope Francis to even address.

"So what can this Pope do? About what? I mean, I don't know of a single institution which has less of a problem, proportionately speaking, today than the Catholic Church when it comes to the sexual abuse of minors":

Bill Donohue Thinks His 'Straight Is Great' Contingent Would Have 'Overwhelmed' Pride Parade

The day before Catholic League head and anti-gay activist Bill Donohue announced that he wouldn’t participate in the NYC Pride Parade even though organizers accepted his application to lead a “Straight Is Great” parade contingent, Donohue told conservative talk show host Steve Malzberg that the parade organizers are maneuvering to keep him out of the parade because they are afraid his “Straight Is Great” message will catch on and flood the parade: “They know what they’re opening the door to: what if instead of getting 100 people, what if I get 3,000 people? What if we begin to overwhelm their parade and vetoes their message?”

Donohue said that he withdrew from the parade because he didn’t want to attend required training sessions for all group leaders.

“Quite frankly, as a straight guy, I don’t go to gay training sessions,” Donohue said. “I think I’m pretty much an untrainable guy when it comes to this thing.”

For the record, those “gay training sessions” that NYC Pride convenes aren’t quite as exciting as they sound: “We hold March information and safety sessions, referred to as group leader trainings, so our participants are fully aware of rules and procedures come event day. These trainings address line-up times, check-in locations, our moment of silence, dispersal activity, NYPD safety policies, attire and vehicle/sound permits. It is imperative group leaders know this information.”

Catholic League's Bill Donohue Wants To Lead 'Straight Is Great' Contingent At NYC Pride Parade

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League announced today that the controversy over the New York St. Patrick’s Day parade’s ban on LGBT groups has inspired him to apply to march at the New York pride parade with a “Straight Is Great” banner.

Donohue told conservative talk show host Steve Malzberg that if his application is approved he will “bring a big wedding cake” to the pride parade, in what he seems to think would be a slight to LGBT people.

Donohue told Malzberg that he’s had his “last pint” of Guinness after the beer company dropped its sponsorship of the St. Patrick’s Day parade over its anti-gay policy, adding that he will burn his Guinness cap. “I’m going to go after Guinness big time, nonstop, relentlessly,” Donohue said, arguing that the company is “trying to stick it to Roman Catholics.”

Catholic League: De Blasio Should 'Honeymoon In North Korea,' Reveal Supposed Atheism

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League is out today with a column in Newsmax attacking Bill de Blasio, the New York Democratic mayoral nominee, for his role in a group founded by a Catholic league.

While Donohue would typically go after anyone over anything critical they say about the Catholic Church, he lambastes de Blasio for working for the Jesuit Quixote Center in the 1980s. Donohue claims de Blasio should have mentioned “his extremist associations on his website” and admit that he is an atheist Marxist.

“Given de Blasio's insensitivity to Catholic concerns, it is not unfair to at least probe his religious affiliation,” Donohue writes. “If he is an atheist — his Latin-American dictatorial buddies surely are — we would like to know.”

“If he wins, maybe he'll honeymoon in North Korea. They would surely welcome him.”

Donohue added that Catholic voters should be wary about de Blasio because he opposes censorship of “anti-Catholic” art and the ban on gays marching in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Manhattan.

He may be the next mayor of the city of New York. Only recently have we learned who Bill de Blasio is (no one really cared much about him when he was the city's public advocate, an undefined made-out-of-whole-cloth job). Now that we have learned some important matters about his life, we are left with even more questions.

We know that his early political career was Marxist, and not just in an academic sense. He raised money for the Sandinistas, visited Nicaragua to align himself with the tyrants, and worked to undermine the efforts of the Reagan administration. No wonder he was endorsed by George Soros in August. Curiously, he decided to cover up his radical past: There is no mention of his extremist associations on his website.



Catholics should be especially wary of de Blasio. In November 2000, he took over as campaign manager for Hillary Clinton; she was running for the U.S. Senate seat in New York. The month before, the Brooklyn Museum of Art hosted a vile anti-Catholic exhibit that featured elephant dung smeared on a portrait of the Virgin Mary; pornographic pictures also adorned the "art."

Her rival, New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (he would later drop out for health reasons), stood with the Catholic League; he even pledged to pull public funding to the museum (Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota, who worked for Giuliani, also took this position). Clinton sided with the museum, endearing herself to the artistic community. In fact, it took her quite a while before she even said anything negative about the exhibit. Not unexpectedly, de Blasio went along.



Over the past decade, some New York public officials have decided not to march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade because, they say, homosexuals are barred from marching. De Blasio is one of them. The claim is based on an out-and-out lie: Gays have never been banned from marching. What the parade officials insist on is that all contingents honor St. Patrick — they are not allowed to have their own floats and banners honoring their own cause. This is why pro-life Catholics are banned from marching under their own banner. As New York's Public Advocate, de Blasio decided he would rather show his solidarity with gays before siding with Irish Catholics.

Given de Blasio's insensitivity to Catholic concerns, it is not unfair to at least probe his religious affiliation. No one seems to know. We called his office and emailed his staff, but to no avail. If he is an atheist — his Latin-American dictatorial buddies surely are — we would like to know.

There is one Catholic connection that de Blasio has, and it is not one that any practicing Catholic would want to be associated with. In the 1980s, he was employed by the Quixote Center, a fringe group of Catholics so radical that they were investigated by the Treasury Department for smuggling guns to their Sandinista friends. Indeed, the Quixote Center was also the subject of probes by the IRS and the U.S. Customs Service at this time. This is the same group of zealots who defended the cop-killing racist Mumia Abu-Jamal, the former Black Panther who became a hero to left-wing extremists.

The Quixote Center is hardly a model Catholic outfit. Its "We Are the Church" campaigns have all sought to upend the teachings of the Catholic Church. All of their efforts have failed. No matter, this is the kind of Catholic organization that excites de Blasio, ones that reject the moral teachings of the Catholic Church.

When "Occupy Wall Street" protesters took over Zuccotti Park, trashing the area, raping women, ripping off the homeless, defecating in the street, and taunting the police, there was no bigger fan in New York City than Bill de Blasio, aka Warren Wilhelm, Jr., aka Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. If he wins, maybe he'll honeymoon in North Korea. They would surely welcome him.

Donohue: Gay Marriage 'One of the Most Bizarre Ideas in History'

NewsMax TV interviewed Bill Donohue of the Catholic League yesterday where he spent most of the interview explaining that he, like the Catholic Church, has no problem with gay people as long as they are celibate or married to someone of the opposite-sex. After Donohue argued that the only purpose of marriage is procreation, host David Nelson asked him what he thinks then of married heterosexual couples who can’t have children.

Donohue said there is nothing sinful about that…since they will serve as “ready substitutes” who will raise kids whose parents have died.

He then launched into a tirade against same-sex marriage, which he said is wrong because it doesn’t have enough support from religious groups and called it “one of the most bizarre ideas in history.”
